International Travelers

Carol and I celebrated our 17th Anniversary yesterday. We decided to celebrate in style in Canada since neither of us had ever been there. The U.S. to Canada bridge we had to cross was very long passing over the Soo Locks. The traffic coming into the U.S. was backed up for a mile and the toll attendant told us it was about an hours wait, but by the time we would be returning, it would only take about 15 - 20 minutes.

After passing through the Customs Station on the Canada side we drove around for an hour scouting out places to eat. There wasn’t a whole lot to choose from.



 We ended up at a place called Docks Riverfront Grill. Very nice place and by the time we left there was a line to get in.

Carol had a Greek Chicken Wrap w/Onion Rings and I had the Fried Coconut Shrimp Dinner w/veggies, baked potato, and salad.

On our way home Carol snapped a pretty picture from the bridge as we passed over the Soo Locks.


P.S.: I gave Carol a Sony eBook Reader w/book cover, carrying case, and 4Gb memory card for our Anniversary. She’s already downloaded a couple of books off the Internet (I haven’t told her it will hold over 3,000 books). She played around with it all day.

  1. That dinner you had sure looked good! Carol will love her Sony eBook reader, I've had one for about a year now and wouldn't be without it. It's great to have all of the books in one place - especially when traveling.

  2. The Sony EBook Reader was the best purchase we ever made.

    Our only complaint is finding a way to charge it without connecting it to my computer. Couldn't find an adapter. Any suggestions?

    Also, thank you so much for being a follower on our blog, we are now following yours and hope to meet up with you someday in our travels.
